A trip to Galveston is a trip back to the grandeur and elegance of the Victorian era. Horse-drawn carriages take visitors through the island city's streets, which are lined with dozens of historic 19th-century homes and mansions. One of the most popular is Bishop's House, a striking Victorian castle decorated with intricately carved ornaments, stained-glass windows, rare woods, bronze dragons and even a fireplace lined with pure silver. In downtown Galveston, the Strand National Historic Landmark District has one of the largest and most well-preserved concentrations of Victorian architecture in the country, along with museums, art galleries and antiques shops.
